This is a one-period lesson activity for students studying the fall of Rome. It works well if you do not want to spend too much time on the "fall" and after this one lesson students will have the basics; you can stop with this or go further on the topic as you wish. Students read two primary sources and view a simply written list of their reasons for the fall of Rome. Then they compare the two lists in an analytical activity to find similarities and differences between the two well-respected sources. Answers provided.
